TRANSPORTATION
In junior high and high school she would ride her back to town. When she came home late at night she hopped off her bike and hid in the ditch.
HIRED HELP
Factories were hiring people for the war effort. People would rather work in a shop than on the farm. The army was also recruiting young men. From the war on it was hard to get help. Jackie's grandfather was able to hired high quality college students. By the time her dad was quitting farming, they could only hire "the dredges." Her grandpa worked to make the day's load fair, with breaks and decent quitting time. Through the Depression the farm was able to support 50 people.
FOOD & MEALS
Always cooking at the big house. The help ate dinner and supper with the family. Jackie attributes her slow eating to the fact that there was always so much going on at meals in her house growing up. Professors would come and eat with them or Chet Haysley, who was a salesman who sold them their milk equipment.
